Even a cat can do it

I am reminded on a daily basis that StL's bus system needs to be more user-friendly. Even bare bones schedules and maps at every stop would go a long way, as would running buses more than every 500 years (erm, 30 minutes).

But still, I have heard some funny excuses over the years for why folks don't climb aboard.

Next time I get an earful about how trying [just once!] even the straightforward, straight line, eponymous, every-10-minutes Grand bus is mysteriously "too hard," I believe I will have to let the person know that even a cat can figure out a bus system.

Behold!: Mystery cat takes regular bus to the shops

....thanks to Jesse Swoboda for the tip!

Not that anyone asked, but in my small mind, the only thing wrong with public transit in St. Louis is that it is 98% NOT user-friendly. It's like they* (*Bi-State Dev. Co./Metro) take all of our money to build the thing and yet they really don't want us to USE it. Dog forbid the thing would be used, let alone function correctly. I think they* are amazed that people even use the buses & trains.
